679 - Colle Sommeiller

NIEUWENHUIS Bas - 28-08-2015:
Dear BIG members,
I made the Sommeiller today on a (rented) roadbike, and this was a bad idea. The road is so bad, you really require a mountainbike, preferably a full suspension one to get you safely back down in Bardonechia.
The road surface is not gravel (gravillon), but rocks (pierres), up to 25cm in size. I had five flat tires.
Cheers, Bas
